Reply, 'For Mr Dugald Campbell'. Mr Campbell 'Must not venture another Winter in this country'. Cullen does not advise Jamaica as a destination, but since he has to go there, he provides dietary advice for the voyage and (to some extent) living there. The only medicine needed is a laxative, for which he provides two recipes. 28 September 1776
